Hi all,

I've got a Windows 7 Enterprise, 64bit VM running on a stock CentOS 5.6 x86_64 dom0 (3.0.3 RPMs). I noticed that 'win7' was not an option in virt-install, so I only set the os type to 'windows'.

The (other) Linux VMs (another CentOS 5.6 x86_64) is snappy and fast, but the Windows 7 VM is sluggish. Is there any advice on "optimizing" the Windows VM (either in dom0 or in the VM itself)?

Thanks for any advice!
